It's Monday, so I'm going to do another little recap on what I've been keeping myself busy (oh so busy) with.
Things I've been up to...
For all intents and purposes I finished my draft. So now I'm back to the beginning, revising the crap out of it. I'm hoping to be done with this project by the end of the year. I can easily do it as long as I keep my focus and don't let myself get distracted. Can you help me stay accountable, friends? I get so distracted by shiny things on tumblr. (I sorta wish I had never gone on tumblr. It's fun and all, but it's the biggest mindless time suck ever. Gah.)
I have to say, I am so glad to be out of drafting mode and back in to revision mode. I like taking what's already there and making it better more that making something out of nothing.
Watching Pitch Perfect
I've seen it four times already. I'm completely obsessed. Singing and music and humor and omg it was so up my alley I can't even handle it. And I have developed the worst (and by worst I mean best) crush on Skylar Astin.
Yeah, when I'm not watching the movie I'm looking at that gif.
Work is really tough this year, guys. I'm having a hard time in the classroom, and I come home exhausted every single day. It makes it hard to write, it makes it hard to blog, it makes it hard to be a functioning human being. I'm looking at it as a day-by-day sort of thing right now, and, well, let's just say that this song has been my anthem:
Hanging out with some writing peeps
This past weekend I headed down to my friend Dana's house for her annual Scribbler's Fork dinner. I couldn't make last year's, so I was so excited to finally be able to take part in the fun! There was food and wine and lots of awesome writer friends, so we talked about books and writing until late into the night.
The only picture I have has no flash, but luckily you can see my hair from space.
Yeah...I probably shouldn't have even bothered posting that.
Dana is such an awesome friend, and I feel so lucky to have her in my life. It's really the best to be able to spend time with like-minded people...and it really charged my batteries for my revision.
How are you all doing? I hope that all of you are being productive and kicking ass with your goals. Have a great week, friends!
